While this uniform is alright for Hooter’s, it might not be for food truck employees.

DALLAS, TX – Hypocrisy has entered the discussion between politicians relating to food trucks again. This time, it has happened within the city council chamber in Dallas. This story comes from SideDish at Dmagazine.com

The Dallas City Council’s Quality of Life Committee met on Monday about potentially lowering the costs of streetscape licensing and street vending permits in downtown Dallas.

The proposal is to cut vending licenses by half to $600 annually. Right now, food trucks are allowed to operate between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m. daily, but the proposed update would extend those hours to 10 p.m. (Mon-Thursday, Sunday) and midnight (Friday and Saturday). There’s also a suggestion to require photo ID badges for all vendors, prohibit smoking by vendors while operating in the vending locations, and to establish a dress code.

Everything looks good until they delve into a dress code.

Appendix B: Proposed Dress Code

Proposed minimum dress requirements for vendors include the following

  • Clothing must be neat, clean and sanitary at all times
  • Walking shorts allowed, but no cut-offs ? No apparel with offensive or suggestive language,images, symbols
  • No tank tops or halter tops
  • No outer apparel made of fishnet or undergarment material

Funny thing about required clothing for food truck is that there is no similar code for restaurant employees. Got Hooters?
